St. Paul 2018

A thread in much of my photographic work alludes to marks we make on the landscape. These marks, temporary or permanent, often link geography, culture, and/or time. I am drawn to disparate places that evoke contradictory feelings; simultaneously familiar yet exotic, peaceful and wild, bleak but welcoming. I find these places inspirational. They allow time for contemplation and imagination; and often create a kind of melancholy that suits my personality.
